about myself, i just want to echo what supervisor elsbernd said about dan weaver. he is awe inspiring, a legendary neighborhood advocate and he would do wonders on this committee. a little bit about myself. i'm a practicing attorney in san francisco. i live in westwood park. i have a son who is now a sophomore at [speaker not understood] high school just adjacent to the balboa park station. i am also a member of the board of directors of the ocean avenue association, the cbd that mr. weaver is the executive director of. and i'm currently serving as treasurer of the ocean avenue association. i think it's fair to say that ocean avenue corridor has turned a corner. we've seen tremendous improvements in the area and i think now is precisely the time to focus on the balboa park station and all that that can offer to the entire community, city college, [speaker not understood], and all the residents in the area. i bring an open mind and a commitment to service and i would very much like to be a part of this committee. i do notice that i had applied for vacancies 6 and 9. i don't know if the
think that there is in many respects perhaps a reason why he wasn't reappointed, as supervisor elsbernd said. so, i actually think that that's the kind of independence that could be very useful on the sunshine task force. and, so, you know, i am not going to vote against bruce oka based on that because i do believe that he is someone who will, you know, call it as he sees it. the one thing that i would ask bruce is not only that you provide fair treatment to all these agencies and government officials that come before you, that i think it's also that you, you know, do the same with respect to the people who submit those complaints and the public because that is a very important function of that, of that body. and i think you will do that. >>> [inaudible]. >> and i would encourage the -- some of the folks who spoke and who have been involved and done tremendous work around this issue to reach out to bruce because i actually think that bruce can be an ally in those efforts. so, even though i have said previously that i wish that bruce [speaker not understood] would be appointed, i think b

is needed is an advisory committee to make sure the departments are communicating. and supervisor elsbernd's department we have the mother's building that needs in dire condition, and part of the problem is the two departments aren't talking. there's another mural in district 11 that needs fixing up. so i think so i don't have to work on this in 20 years forward, that there needs to be some type of body where the two departments talk to each other, and i think this citizens advisory committee, where the departments could come and talk, make sure the vendors following their duty, and making sure we don't have ongoing problems with our murals. thank you. >> president farrell: thank you very much. next speaker please. >> hello. my name is jane blachly and i'm the daughter of one of the coit tower artist, and i have a few comments to make here. one is about the problem of the traffic that has been going through, regardless of some of the recommendations. i have a letter that was written very recently by the head of the coit tower, john dillen jer and he states in it that he himself saw people
